At the 2017 Napa Valley Vintner's wine auction, we poured our Sauvignon Blanc along with about 25 other producers. Following her tasting of the offerings; St. Helena Star wine writer; Catherine Bugue, proclaimed Jazzie as Wine of the Week.
Here is what Catherine had to say:
As we simmer under the warm sun this summer, Lagniappe’s crisp sauvignon blanc will come as a welcome respite. Discovered at Auction Napa Valley under just those conditions this past week, the Jazzie is a vibrantly fruity sip that finishes nice and crisp. Neutral French barrels, and stirring of the lees, bring a rich texture to the wine without adding oak-influenced flavors. This lets the stone fruits and pink grapefruit citrus character shine along with an interesting hint of flinty stones.
Lagniappe is a French term for “an unexpected surprise” or “a little something extra.” Keep a few bottles on hand, and you’ll have an insta-refreshment to pull out at a moment’s notice this summer.
